The worst hotel ever. It is continusly under renovation. The drilling was starting at 7am! Dirty and neglected. Rude owner. Our stuff was moved to the the diferent room without asking or informing. Hole in the floor leading to the draining system, broken toilet seat, leaking tap and unsecured wires! I booked the hotel in rush and in the last minute and so much regret I did not check reviews. I am not fussy person and always trying to look at positive sides and not often complaining at hotels, but this one is disgarce, believe me.

We came to the hotel and the room was old and dirty!! We found sand and hairs over all the beds.. The bathroom was disgusting and had obviously not been cleaned. We told this to the manager and he showed us an other room WHICH WAS EVEN DIRTIER! We didn't even stay even if it was two o clock at night.

The "hotel", if it can even be called that, is a disgrace. The pictures do not resemble at all what it really looks like. The entrance and front desk are supposedly under construction or remodeling, but apparently this has been already going on for a while, and they look really messy and sketchy, they even made me wonder whether that was actually the hotel or not. There are no signs or indications as to where to go in, and one has to adventure into this apparently abandoned building to find out it is actually the hotel. The whole experience was very uncomfortable from the beginning, the owner is very rude and has a very bad attitude towards his costumers. He doesn´t even take credit card and makes you pay upfront in cash, which I stupidly fell for. The room was dirty (actual dust on floor and furniture, linen were doubtfully washed, bathroom was disgusting), paper wall was falling off, walls had terrible humidity problems, sockets were sticking out of the walls, most lamps had no light bulbs, and those who had didn´t even work, mattress had springs sticking out of it and was terribly uncomfortable, the door lock didn´t even lock. Amenities are out of the question, we got one towel (for two), one pillow each, and one little sad soap bar. No shampoo. I literally felt I paid to stay in prison. When I complained to the owner he had a terrible attitude, he said that we got exactly what we saw online when we reserved, which is simply not true. When I asked to get a refund because I did not want to stay there anymore he refused to give me anything back. Again, I made the stupid mistake of paying upfront in cash, not that I had many options. The price per night is definitely not worth it, you don´t pay what you get, it´s a straight out rip off. I´m not only saying that you shouldn´t stay in this hotel. Im saying you should keep away from it as far as you can, this has been by far the worst hotel stay I have had. As for trip advisor (and other pages like expedia) please please update the pictures because you are misleading your costumers. This place is not like you are showing it at all. I would even consider it taking it down from your webpages, this place should not even be an option for tourists to begin with.

Don't believe the photos the management posted. This was the worst hotel I've ever stepped foot in. While the manager says the place is under construction, this would have to be true for ten years. Exposed wiring. Mold. Cigarette burns on the sheets and furniture. Run!

dear friends, do not book and pay this I am sorry for such words but it is exactly what can describe this so called **hotel**/ rude stuff which force to pay in the entrance, and do not show the rooms first. dirty smelly rooms, with no no service at all. they do reparation 24 hours a day, you want to sleep in your room? no way. you will hear drills and shouts of handworker all night and your complains is nothing cause they simply does not care. Stay away from this, I hope they will colaps as soon as possible. so noone has experiance like me ((

I recommend to other tourist never stay in this hotel. Stupid and rude staff, dirty hotel, not giving a proper documents (invoice, cheque) after stay. People, never and never stay in this hotel. Otherwise u will spoil you trip to this beatuful country.

I was in a bit of a rush and emergency situation needing a room for a couple of nights in Tel Aviv. I wish I had had the time to read the reviews. I would have avoided it. The only good things about this hotel are the location (quite central and convenient) and the photographer who took the pictures for the website: they deserve an Oscar. The place is terrible, in shambles: dirty, old, overpriced. A shame for the lovely city of Tel Aviv. Service is appalling, almost scary and certainly rude. I notice from the previous review that the excuse "the credit card stopped working" is just another scam to force you to pay cash. I should have run away when I arrived and there was a lady crying in distress in the "lobby" which is actually just a dirty hole. I was forced to stay because of circumstances and I had to adapt even to the stained bed sheets. Stay away until they receive an inspection, I am sure they would be closed for hygiene reasons.

What a terrible experience from the moment we arrived. The entire place is under construction. When I tried to check in and pay with my credit card they said that they could not accept my credit card so I was forced to pay with cash. Then we get in the room (no elevator by the way) The room smelled like someone had died in there. The air conditioner was leaking, walls all filthy, the bathroom had mold all over and the dust from all of the construction was overwhelming. What an awful place. Nothing like the pictures on or any other site. When I asked for a refund only after having checked in 30 minutes prior they said that they would charge us only for one night and allow us to leave without an additional penalty. In a nutshell, they kept $250 of my hard earned money. I have travelled the world and never experienced anything like this in my life. Not even in Africa, the Caribbean or Latin America. This place is horribly filthy! It is a dump. If the board of tourism in this country wants to keep its tourists they need to shut down places like this. This is simply unacceptable.

Horrible hotel, nothing to do with the photos uploaded by the management. Had to leave immediately. Owner claims that the credit card machine isn't working and that you have to pay cash. He tricks u cause he makes you pay everything before you get to see the room. Very dirty bathroom even stinks. Dirty bedding even had hair from previous guests. Dirty towels. Dirty floors. Save your money and stay away! Had to book a new hotel and he didnt give a refund to us. He even yelled to us in another language. STAY AWAY

Talk about a disorganised reception with a strong tobacco smell, unfriendly staff, dusty rooms, old furniture, stained towels, no floor mats and a noisy AC. The only thing that works is the wifi, everything else is a disaster. My advice is simple...STAY AWAY don't trust photos or the website!
